Mission statement of Navy ROTC

"To develop future officers mentally, morally, and physically, and to instill in them the highest ideals of duty, loyalty, and the core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment in order to commission college graduates as Naval officers who possess a basic professional background, are motivated toward careers in the Naval Service, and have a potential for future development in mind and character so as to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship, and government."

In short, our program is a four year course of study to be completed while enrolled and seeking a bachelor's degree at the University of New Mexico or Central New Mexico Community College. Our students typically apply for entry prior to their freshman year of college. We do not accept applicants who have more than 30 credit hours of undergraduate academic credit.
